A Music Blog (#26: What sort of burritos do they have in spain?)

I'm actually kinda curious now with that...
A 2x song combo blog entry again, as it basically came down to 'dang it this band has a few too many examples of good guitar solos so I'll just pick two'.
It's The Doors again and I'm being dumb and picking songs that may not be the most known of theirs as well that'd fit the guitar solo theme. If you want such songs though then go for the likes of Light My Fire (sort of a combo guitar/keyboard set of solos), Soul Kitchen, Queen of the Highway, L.A. Woman... they like their solos.
This first song starts out with a solo, and an acoustic one at that. Soon enough a second guitar joins in as well.
One thing I like about The Doors is that the lyrics are often poetic. Although this one is perhaps not that complicated in the wording it does enough to allow you to imagine what Morrison (the lead singer) was thinking when he penned the song, and it works well with the music. (I believe that how it worked in many cases was that Morrison came up with the words and the song was made around them by the rest of the band).
The beginning is not entirely original, but actually in part taken from a classical Spanish composer. I suppose that is fitting in a way and hence the music probably came before the words. The beginning is one of my favourite pieces of music (not just by The Doors but generally speaking), and even nicer to listen to on headphones after a long day. That guitar just works for the song... I don't think it's a surprise I much prefer the first half to the second with the verses.
The other song sadly does not have nice lyrics in it (although maybe you'd like them, idk). Probably as the song was post-Morrison. What it does though if have a lot of nice music solos in it!
I think the song may have been written while someone was eating a burrito when a mosquito came and bothered them. Just a hunch though. =p
But once the chorus is sung a second time the song kicks off with the solos. And it's just basically nice music melded together into a glorious four minutes. And that's just fine with me.
but where did the mosquito live
